Although never a photographer myself, I have always been fond of photography. Last year
I decided to produce a Dhamma book that would be of interest to the many people in Thailand
who do not usually read Dhamma books. It would be a book of photographs. I asked for
photos on any subject at all from my students and through them their families and friends. In
all I received some three or four thousand images, which I whittled down to a few hundred of
my favourites. And then I began to impose a narrative on the material. I chose as my subject
the path to liberation. The demands of metre can affect the content of a poem, bringing forth
phrases from the poet’s mind that might otherwise have remained unformed. Similarly, In
seeking to present the Buddha’s teachings within the framework provided by a random set
of photographs I have found new ways of expressing myself. I hope my readers will enjoy
the experiment as much as I have.

In Thailand, performing an act of goodness without hope of reward or recognition is compared
to attaching gold leaf to the unseen back of a Buddha image. I would like to express my
deep appreciation of all those who have attached gold leaf to this project.

The book before you is an English version of the Thai original. It is not an exact rendering of
the original, more a non-identical twin.
